Youth Golf Network, Inc. (YGN) is planning its first annual charity 100 Holes of Golf Marathon in support of their Pass the Torch Scholarship Program.
Previously, Anne Arundel Women’s Golf Organization, Youth Golf Network, Inc. reorganized under a new name and is hosting a Golf-A-Thon in Anne Arundel County on September 16, 2011 at Bay Hills Golf Club in Arnold, MD. The event is designed to raise money for youth summer golf programs and scholarship programs.
“At Youth Group Network, Inc. we want to empower our youth through the game of golf,” said Jeannette Ortegon, president of YGN. “We also want to help disadvantaged youth through the sport.”
YGN currently is looking for golfers who are willing to save the date and commit to bringing a team to play 100 holes of golf in 12 hours. Participating golfers will get pledges from family and friends to support YGN’s youth programs. Non-golfers can pledge $1, $2 or $3 per hole. Visit, www.youthgolfnetwork.org for more information on participating or pledging.
In addition to youth programs, the organization raises money to support cancer research through golf events in the fall. The group is starting a scholarship fund that will allow a deserving high school graduate to attend college in 2012.
